|Atlantic Bariatric Center offers a monthly support group. Shelly Geis, our bariatric coordinator, moderates the sessions. Shelly underwent gastric banding in 2008, so she is a great listener and offers a wealth of information.
Support group meetings are always the 2nd Tuesday of each month
5:30 - 6:30 pm
Conference Room at Atlantic Bariatric Center
The first half of the meeting is educational and will alternate between nutrition and fitness. These meetings are open to pre- and post-op patients. Lots of stories are shared and pre-op patients can gain insight on life after the surgery. We highly encourage you to attend as many meetings as you can.
You can view tapings of previous support group sessions at the links below. We plan to add videos of future meetings moving forward.
